As one reader said our chat: “If the FBI is following me, it will be groundhog day for the observer.” Well, one can only agree with this, otherwise how can one explain that here it is, Saturday, and with it your favorite section of “Answers to Questions”. If you describe the week in three words, then: “There are fewer applications.” It was the disappearance of Sberbank and Alfa-Bank applications, as well as the life hack to “resurrect” Apple Pay, that our readers discussed. But we got into the bowels of our chat and found a subscriber’s question, which we forgot to answer.
When will the new MacBook Air 2022 be released?
Last September, when everything was more or less calm in the world, Apple planned to start production of the new MacBook Air in the third quarter of 2022 – approximately the laptop was supposed to be presented in September. About it informed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, noting that the MacBook Air should get a new design, a mini-LED display, two USB-C ports and a MagSafe charging port. As a result, at the end of March, Mark Gurman (Bloomberg editor) noted in his columnthat the company will likely delay the launch of new MacBook Airs until the end of the year, and will not release 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros until 2023.
The Mac mini, the new iMac and the iPad Pro, all claiming the Apple M2 chip, have also been called into question – the timing of device updates is also unclear. According to rumors, it is worth waiting for WWDC 2022 to find out the details – it is at this event that Apple will give answers to many questions. True, you should not expect a crazy increase in performance from the new processor: in fact, everything will become a little better than it was, and the chip will be designed for years to come – just like the Apple Silicon processors in the iPhone.
New Macbook design
During the week, I very opportunely stumbled upon article 9to5mac about the all-new MacBook Air design. The author claims that according to new data, Apple’s compact laptop will be the biggest change in the appearance of a laptop since its release in 2008. It will be so cute that it will appeal to many users and encourage them to buy the device, but at the same time it will not appeal to others, pushing them to buy a MacBook Pro, even if they have nowhere to put so much power.
At the moment, even columnist 9to5mac admits that, apart from some color options for the MacBook Air, there are no differences between generations in terms of design. Roughly speaking, those who buy a laptop from Apple for show off, can safely buy not the newest generation, but no one will notice the difference. So, in the new generation, there will be white frames around the screen instead of black ones, and also expected new body colors – in the spirit of the iMac, because users are tired of “space gray” and “rose gold”. There will also be no cutout above the display. But it is the frames around the screen that the author considers an important factor due to which the MacBook Air 2022 will become popular.
MacBook Air in Russia
And now for the bad: for now, expect MacBook in Russia (even if it comes out) is not worth it. Apple has suspended the supply of equipment to our country, turned off the Russian version of the site … you already know all this. There is no new data on the resumption of sales. All hope in this situation is exclusively on the “serovozov”, but imagine how much will a macbook air cost in russia pretty hard.
For example, the same loser iPhone SE 2022 phone can now be obtained for almost 70,000 rubles – and this is at best. Twice as expensive as it could have cost if Apple hadn’t left Russia! So when a new MacBook Air comes out, simply multiply the dollar retail price by 100 and then double it again. Approximately such an equation we get. We will know the answer closer to the fall.
